Automated Flu Shot Propaganda

Recently, I wrote about the blu light special mentality concerning flu shots. I noted that Dr. Oz’s website has a page that looks like a billboard for Walgreen’s, with a sponsor message: “Walgreens provides convenient immunizations services – Pneumonia, Shingles, Tetanus, Hepatitis B, Meningitis and Whooping Cough. Protect yourself and your loved ones.” We can expect that list of immunizations to grow and grow over time, as it already has done. This website billboard is in spite of the fact that Dr. Oz’s wife does not get the flu shot, and she does not allow her children to get the junk juice.

Less than a year ago, I wrote this article about being fired by my conventional family doctor. So, on the basis of a primal friend’s recommendation, I made an appointment with his family doctor, as my new doc, so I can get some blood labs run. I was told that while he is not necessarily 100% holistic in his practice, he will be friendly and open to my health and wellness philosophy. As soon as I made the first appointment (and before my first visit), I must have been put into their system because I immediately started receiving automated calls, using the doctor’s voice, to encourage me to come in and get the flu shot as soon as possible!

    Just wanted to respond to your mention of making an appointment with a doctor in order to get blood labs done–you may already know this, but you can most certainly get labs done without involving a doctor. There are any number of online services where you can order the tests you want without a prescription. You pay up front and the order for the lab work is sent to whichever local lab you choose from the list. Then the results are sent to you online in a day or two for most tests. You can then take these labs to your doctor appointment if you need a prescription renewed or something else done that requires a doc. Googling “online lab tests” will get you many results. I just used an online service for a thyroid panel about 2 months ago and it cost me $39–I’ve seen this same test on my previous health insurance statements at over $100!!! Anyway, I like the fact that this option is out there and we can get tests without an rX and see the actual results ourselves rather than wait for the doc to tell us how we are….

    Hi – Yes, I am very aware, and these are great services. But blood labs aren’t my only purpose, of course.

    Cyrexlabs is a good one, as is Direct Labs. Also, Life Extension Foundation.
